lictween tho Sandw ich Islands anil New
Zealand on a line from San Francisco.
According to treaty stipulation the American
and several other nations are bound
to protect the islands in the right to rule
themselvos. The English government
has signified its intention to co-operate
with the United States in putting a stop
(o German aggression in Samoa if international
law and treaty stipulations have
been violated, and this may bring Germany
to time in double-quick order and
stop thewar,whichiftheluufis told, our
government is bound to wage. Several
men-of-war have been dispatched to the
but it will take six week for them
to reach the islands. The matter is being
thoroughly investigated by the war
department and if it be found that the
GermatiB have mistreated the Americans
there and torn down and burned our
flag as reported, very decisive measures
will le reported to. Secretary Hayard
lias a chance to send the administration
out in a blaze of glory, and we trust he
will be equal to the occasion. Gov. Mc-Creary,
chairman of the Hou.-e Commit
tee on Foreign Affairs, believes there is
but little danger of war, as he thinks the
German government after investigation
will make all necessary apologies mid indemnities.
FoniTKKX million seems to be the favorite
number of petitioners when you
want Congress to do something. Senator
Blair's Sunday Vest bill lias that
number and so did the W. C. T. t's.
The bill will require everybody, railroads,
newspapers, etc.. to shut up shop
willy nilly. The right of petition has
always been recognized in our government,
but the average petition isn't
worth shucks. Many sign it without
knowing what it is for, others to be

The Atlanta Constitution went to the
useless trouble and expense of sending
one of its editors nway up to Columbus,
0., to interview Little Breeches Foraker
on the Southern question. He was
quite glib with his tongue and said
among other things that the only trouble
is that the negro vote is suppressed in
the South. Hut, until the trouble is re
suppression is not used then charges of
crime are trumped up against the negro
and he is shut up in jail till after the
election. Commenting on this the paper
says: "The trouble is, the negro vote is
suppressed in Governor Foraker's mind,
and not in the South. The cure, therefore,
lies with him and not with us.

Coi. Pint.i.irs, of the Lebanon Standard,
who has been carrying on a newspaper
war with Col. Colgan, of the

public a rest by seeing if the editor-poet
